I have not been using sheet masks much in 2017 but I recently started using a retinoid and thought my skin could use a boost. I like sheet masking because the different sheet masks have different benefits and can be useful when other products cause irritation. Right now my skin is a little bit irritated and super dry, so I decided to go with the Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack.
If I sheet mask I always do it before bed. Naturally the first step of this routine is washing my face. Tonight I used the Tosowoong Enzyme Powder Wash, which is my go-to face wash when I’m not in the shower. I love this face wash because it has a balanced ph and doesn’t dry my skin out. It is super neutral and also doesn’t have any acne triggers. It would be my holy grail if it didn’t seem to always get ruined in the shower.
After washing my face I spray Dear by Enprani Moistful Booskin all over my face. This is my all-time favorite asian beauty product and I’ve been going nuts lately because I can’t find a full-size bottle online for an affordable price. Moistful Booskin is a moisturizing toner which works to hydrate your face and prepare it for whatever comes next. This particular product smells like roses and is perfect. I decanted it into this spray bottle so I could get full, all-over coverage without wasting a drop.
After the booskin, I use an active. Since I’m working on adding the retinoid into my routine most nights, I used Stridex in the red box tonight. I don’t remember why at this point, but red box is the only one that you should use. This is one of the very best products for actually fighting acne out there – I highly recommend it. Since it can be a bit drying, I always follow up with a face lotion or a hydrating sheet mask.
Now, the sheet mask. As I mentioned, I used the Benton Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack tonight. I love this mask – it’s one of the first asian beauty products that I bought and I try to always have one on hand. They’re super soothing, smell good, don’t have acne triggers, and my skin always feels perfectly hydrated the next day. I figured it would be good since my skin is breaking out a little bit from the retinoid, and the moisturizing aspect is desperately needed right now. I have a dozen other masks that I’ll use if I’m feeling adventurous or experiencing a bad breakout, but this is a nice go to when my skin needs a pick-me-up.
So there ya go! My nighttime sheet mask routine. What is your routine? Any favorite products? Any recommendations?
